  • Important to know full story of Democrats, Republicans

    Phil Noble’s article, “A scorned S.C. hero,” on April 18, is an article with a lot of information missing. This scorned hero, federal Judge Julius Waites Waring, he wrote about was a longtime Democrat, who actually became a Republican in his ideology and actions.

  • For a maze challenge, travel Riverside

    If you enjoy driving in a maze, then you need to travel Riverside Road from Meeting Street to S.C. 5. It’s a true challenge, and you’ll be lucky if your car is still in one piece.

  • Even from the cross Jesus shows compassion

    Jesus spoke seven different times while he hung on the cross at Calvary.

    As he was being nailed to the cross, Jesus prayed, “Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do.” This showed that Jesus knew that his persecutors did not realize they were crucifying the Lord of glory.

  • Carnes explains road funding

    This column was supposed to be dedicated to talking about the county budget process, but with the weather we had in February causing additional road problems, I would like to dedicate this column and my next column to talking about roads.

    There have been several letters to the editor about the increased potholes and road issues following the winter storms we have experienced.

  • A scorned S.C. hero

    April 11, 2014, was a very important day in the history of South Carolina. Few people noticed that anything much happened – but I would argue that this was the day we, as a state, did two very important things.

    First, we recognized a hero. And second, we showed that there is a new South Carolina that is – and for some time has been– struggling to be born.

  • USDA seeks local sponsors for free summer lunch program

    As a child, I always looked forward to the carefree joy of summertime. I remember the long days of playing outside at a nearby park until I needed to come home for lunch. 

    Unfortunately, many of our nation’s children do not experience the simple joys of summer. In fact, far too many are left worrying where their next breakfast or lunch will come from when schools are dismissed for summer break.

  • Do your part on Earth Day

    On April 22, we will have the 44th anniversary of Earth Day. This was started by people as a way to call attention to environmental pollution the country was then experiencing.

    So in the past 44 years, how have we done as a nation? As a former EPA administrator has said, “All of our rivers and lakes may not be fishable and swimmable, but they are no longer flammable.”

  • Six trials of Christ

    The Bible records six trials of Jesus before his crucifixion. The first three were before Jewish religious authorities, and the last three were before Roman authorities.

    After his betrayal, Jesus was led away to Annas, a former high priest. Annas questioned Jesus about his disciples and his teaching, and allowed a nearby temple officer to strike Jesus in the face.
